I'm not looking for any answers on this since I'm continuing to narrow down the issue and post only so others are aware of it, but occasionally experience slow speeds myself even during the LNFZ when I expect low congestion either that or those in beam 329 are up pretty early this AM - JEP go back to sleep, I'm working here!

The symptom manifests itself on the bottom of the modem status page at with a High Open Socket Count:

However, I have concluded this is unrelated to Exede, and is caused by a misbehaving page and/or update activity. While I've have failed to pinpoint the culprit or exact circumstances, the list has substantially narrowed for me this AM.

Regardless, if experiencing sporadic or intermittent slowdowns - check your modem status with the link above for a High Open Socket Count. The only workaround I've found  to restore it to good health is a one-finger salute to the power strip controlling both modem and router  - power down the modem/router, pause for a while (10 seconds works for me others pause longer), power up the modem/router and enjoy the blue-light special as the modem reacquires the signal. Next time so as to eliminate the router from the equation, I'll salute the power strip controlling the modem only (it's plugged into the other power strip, actually a UPS).

Not a cure-all for all speed issues, but works for this specific symptom.
